Hot runner system supplier Incoe offers the VIX valve gate hot runner nozzle, which has a tip featuring an end cap specifically designed for delivering enhanced colour change performance. The tip geometry has been optimised to ensure the efficient material flow necessary for fast colour changes.

Already, says the manufacturer, this tip design has provided excellent colour change results in many applications: changes have required less time to complete, and part quality is reportedly improved.

The VIX is suitable for use in both pneumatic and hydraulic systems employing a tapered valve pin, and is compatible with Incoe’s unitised and leakproof valve gate hot runner systems.

Like the recently introduced SoftGate valve-pin speed control, this nozzle innovation demonstrates the manufacturer’s commitment to providing plastics-processing customers with continual engineering advances in process control. Incoe supplies a range of nozzles and manifolds, prewired and leakproof unitised systems, complete hot halves and advanced control technologies for hot runner moulding applications.
